I hope that you have made your plans to attend our international convention in New York City, July 24-28. It is a truly ‘destination event’, a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Workshop sessions will follow four strands:

Professional Practices,

Educational Excellence,

DKG and the Future,

and Personal/Cultural Enrichment.


The schedule has been planned that will allow you time on your own to enjoy what attracts you, whether it is sightseeing, shopping, museum browsing, or theatrical performances. Join us in a great city of the world, at a site that is within walking distance of Times Square, Central Park, the Rockefeller Centre, Broadway, and many other places in between.

We are building excitement and enjoyment that is contagious. We hear stories of greater camerarderie


and cohesiveness among members and chapters that let us know that we are well on our way to a successful future. All of us embrace a shared vision to make an impact on education through local, community efforts. Thank you for helping DKG to meet the needs of education in the 21st century, for helping us to design a future that will benefit us all.
